Trump 'doesn't understand the basics,' says 'Fear' author Bob Woodward

Woodward I'll release tapes of book interviews if sources ask me

President Donald Trump is reportedly obsessed with finding the person within his White House who wrote the mysterious New York Times editorial attacking him.

However, in the process, Eric Trump used some questionable terms live on the air.

On Bob Woodward (you know, of Woodward and Bernstein), he accused him of writing a book about the White House just "to make 3 extra shekels".

The shekel is modern Israel's currency, but anti-semites frequently use the word when accusing American Jews of having secret influence over the US government.

"It will mean you sell three extra books, you make three extra shekels, I mean", he added, "at the behest of the American people, at the behest of our country and a president that's doing a phenomenal job by every quantifiable metric".

"A couple of times people would say 'I wanna go off the record, ' " Woodward said.

As such, various liberal and conservative commentators called out Eric Trump for his comments in that interview.

For his part, Mr. Trump has been highly critical of Woodward's book, recently saying that it was "a Joke" and "just another assault against me".

"I spent over a year on this", Woodward said.

Eric Trump is lashing out at veteran Watergate journalist Bob Woodward, and his remarks are drawing accusations of anti-Semitism.

"But as the great editor of The Washington Post, Ben Bradlee, said, 'the truth emerges'".

"Anyone talks like that, whether it's a dog whistle or whatever the intent is, it's not ..."

He made it clear however that such commentary "sets us back".

Co-host Steve Doocy tripped himself up, talking about Democrats as "the other side" before correcting himself to say, "from you", to Eric Trump.
